We tinkered with the AI programs at 1/ST BET, which gives us over 50 data points (like speed, pace, class, jockey, trainer, and pedigree stats) for each race depending on how you like to handicap.
Last Saturday, we lost with Mischievious Kiss to Gulfstream to come back to 0.500 at 25 for 50 since resuming this feature about a year ago. Based on a $2 winning bet on the AI pick of the week, that’s $100 in bets and winnings totaling $99.90 for an ROI of $2.00 for every $2 wagered (loss net of 10 cents). This week I ran the races chosen by our stable of disabled friends at “Team Tuley’s Thoroughbred Takes” through the 1/ST BET programs and came up with our AI Pick of the Week:
Saturday, April 9, 2022 Keeneland Race #9 (5:10 p.m. ET / 2:10 p.m. PT) #10 Smile Happy (odds 9-5 ML)
* Smile Happy ranks 1st out of 10 out of 52 factors used by 1/ST BET AI
* Runhappy’s 3-year-old son also ranks 1st out of 7 of the “Top 15 Factors” on betmix.com, including best speed in last 3 races, best speed on a fast track, best speed lifetime and lifetime average earnings. * It also ranks in the Top 5 for 4 of the other 8 factors, including bet win percentage, best lane speed and average lane wins.
